05. Autumnal Orchard

This natural light photography course covers a number of different techniques for when you’re photographing using only natural light.

One of the key concepts, which was also covered in earlier classes, is the importance of planning. How do you get one step ahead before you start shooting? There’s always a best time to shoot. Best light. Best weather. Best time of the year. Knowing when this is comes down to planning — plan your shoot.

In this class the planning pays off as the team are rewarded with a beautiful autumnal image that was achieved by making only minor adjustments to the camera and settings.


In this photography class we cover the following:

  • Portrait photography using natural light
  • How to use natural light for outdoor portraits
  • Color balance for outdoor portraiture
  • Camera settings for outdoor photography
  • How to compose creative outdoor portraits
  • How to use reflectors for outdoor portraiture
  • Using lens flare for creative effect

Note: This course is available with English subtitles.

  1. Good morning Karl, It was a lovely photo shooting; thanks for show how to shot in natural light. My question is as follow: Why do you increase the °K to 6500? I am seeing that the color range to get orange and red are around 3500 – 2000 °K … Increasing more than 6000°K you will get blue…

    Best regards

    1. Hi Francisco, it’s the opposite when changing it in the camera as it compensating for the colder temperature and making it look warmer.
